Tsunami3k (1 year ago) #10396297I'm most torn on #5. While I like the high-contrast design she seems to be the least star-themed to the point that I'd have presumed she was a "Nighttime Snow Miku". For me the Yukine choice is between monocle or constellation scarf. I completely missed that you could look at each and see the accessories. This could make things tough...
Wow, #3 is loaded with stuff; if #5's accessory wasn't a star-chart parasol, it would have been game over. The constellation leggins from #6 would be an absolute must for a scale figure but are largely wasted on stubby Nendoroid legs.

kaworu5 (1 year ago) #10395423Snow Miku 2017 design is up for voting - event.goodsmile...
The theme is Hokkaido stargazing/constellations. I really like the feel of #4, but not sure if it will blend in well with the past year's ones. I also really like the accessories that come with #3 and #5. Not really wowed by the Yukine selections. Any one but the graduation Yukine would be fine, IMO.

kaworu5 (1 year ago) #6661378Yeah, I'll order two now. POs are a little over 400 now and they were over 1000 last year for the 2015 one. I can't say I'm particularity excited for her like the magical girl one, but she'll be a welcomed addition to the bunch. She'll make a nice action pose which a lot of Miku figures lack IMO.

Cool. Lemme know how much I owe you.

kaworu5 (1 year ago) #6645667You in for another Miku? She's a bit pricier (4500 last year, 5500 this year) and POs seem to be down a lot this year, so no problem if you don't want to this time. I'm in either way. PO ends 6am Monday, so let me know by tonight.
Ah, just saw this. Not a lot of people are PO'ing her? She seems plenty cute. You're ordering then?

kaworu5 (2 years ago) #3172168Not really. It’ll be whatever comes in first. I have 16 figures to go and I should have 18 figures in the mail system currently. It’ll probably be one of the 13 figures that are being shipped by ShoppingMallJapan. If one of the others are late it may be the Snow Miku that should ship this week. With any luck it will be the Aoba replacement that CR shipping messed up. We’ll see.
In an unrelated note, Alice ITEM #288793 turned out nice. But I’m a little apprehensive b/c I’ve never heard of Myethos manufacturer. I see they’ve only done two other figures that haven’t even been released. Do you know if they are a branch off of another company like Stronger was?



It's a good think CR was able to send you a new Aoba. Most of the time it seems like they order just enough to honor 70-100% of their presales.

Yeah, Alice does look nice; I hadn't noticed the update. Sadly I know about as little about Myethos as I do any of the other crop of new figure companies to come out. I've gotta figure nearly all have to be affiliated with one of the bigger companies somehow or another given the complexity of production and distribution. Their one release seems to be relatively well received whereas the photos seem to be around Volks-ish complexity having good details, a pretty clean paint job but minimal-to-no shading. Still, their whole lineup is cute so I'll keep an eye on them for sure.

Oh, speaking of Miku Nendo's, I ordered an extra Harvest Moon Miku so, if you don't have one lined up, you're welcome to call her your own. Just so you know, I also got another dude, presuming Nendoroids count: ITEM #287858.

kaworu5 (2 years ago) #3161548I see you are approaching your 1000th figure. Not sure if you’re at 987 or 976 or why there is a difference in the “owned” figures and figure “items.” Any plans? Going to splurge on a figure that’s been in your wished list a while? Special case or special place in the detolfs?

I've got a few duplicates so the smaller number is probably distinct items. Between my Miku in-flight and the Amazon.jp purchase today, the odds are really good that my Yamato preorder will be #1000; a fitting spot for an upper-end figure (although Musashi floats my boat even more [Hah! Kancolle humor!], she got delayed so not much of a chance there) or maybe, just maybe, next month's Nakahara Tomoe preorder could land on that treasured spot...even more fitting since it's from my favorite Tony Taka image (and perhaps my favorite image in the all of ever [I'm lookin' at you Mona Lisa!]).

Had I planned better I could have splurged on a most-wanted figure like Cheerful Miku or Kos-Mos/T-Elos Swimsuit but, sadly, I have tragically squandered that chance.

Any big plans for #400?
